RFID & Chip Implants

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - February 26, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Gary Ridenour, Katherine Albrecht

Consumer privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht presented an update on RFID and chip implants. Around 300 people have voluntarily had an RFID chip implanted in them, but they could be at an increased risk for cancer, she said. Studies of animals who've been chipped show that up to 10% of them come down with tumors at the site of the implant. The microchipping of pets preys on owners love for their animals, she commented. A plan is also in the works to chip all farm animals, Albrecht added.

She expressed concerns about Border Crossing IDs issued in various states which can be read as far as 20 feet away. Personal information could possibly be gleaned from these cards by electronic readers not associated with the government. Companies such as Checkpoint Systems and Sensormatic Electronics plan to offer RFID tags hidden in clothing and shoes, but legislation is under consideration that would force stores to disclose that the tags were there, said Albrecht.

She also talked about the biblical connections to the issue, noting that for the first time technology is now in place to create the 'mark of the beast.' A small minority of citizens can bring about change, Albrecht pointed out, and she offered a list of ways people can protest or get involved.

Bird Flu Update

First hour guest, Dr. Gary Ridenour discussed the latest issues surrounding a possible Bird Flu epidemic. A major outbreak, as we had in 1918, could be a huge threat to humankind, he noted, adding that flu vaccines were often not effective in preventing the illness.
